Comfortable, Athletic Sandals

The Siena and the Samara sandal aren't the only sandals that they do. There's the Napali sandal (names after Na Pali Coast in Hawaii), that cradles every curve of your foot. The Cortona sandal with arch support for long walks. The Arcadia sandal with 5 hook and loop straps. Or the Slone sandal, an athletic sandal that was just made for adventure. 

They also have orthopedic flip flops with a trendy strap for you to wear with dresses in the evenings. And all their sandals come with their renowned thick foam midsole that can feel as though you're walking on a cloud. 

They use the highest quality materials and cushioned insoles to bring you the most comfortable shoes and they even have versatile water shoes for women and swim shoes that you take on your beach travels and use in and around the pool plus anywhere else you want to wear them. Currently, they can only ship to the U.S. and Canada.

Giving Back

What I really like about Viakix and why I've chosen them as a solo female friendly isn't just because of their comfort. They are footwear with a soul and a passion for the outdoors that has been able to keep that family-business feel to their brand. 

They make the right choices in their supply chain and support organisations driven to environmental change. Plus every time you buy a pair of their sandals, they plant a tree! But they don't just stop there; they've also partnered with Soles4Souls to give back and help those less fortunate. Making them both comfy and ethical!

Viakix Reviews

“I have owned many different kinds of sandals. I normally select keen brands, but these Viakix ones just caught my eye. When I got them I liked the packaging (minimal-no box, just a ziplock type sturdy bag) the sandals looked great, but would they feel great? Yes! I have wide feet and many sandals do not fit correctly due to this. These were comfortable and the adjustable straps made it possible for me to wear them even when I had broken my big toe!

The Perfect Walking Sandal

I have now walked over 30 miles in these shoes and can honestly say they are THE most comfortable walking sandals I have ever owned! I just went back to buy another pair and unfortunately, they are out of my size. Once my size is restocked though, I guarantee I'll be a repeat buyer!” – Barbara Peterson

“I find this to be the most comfortable sandal. I bought them for walking and for an upcoming trip. After wearing them all day my feet and legs felt great. And there was no blistering or “breaking in” necessary. I have the pink and they are great. I have more expensive similar sandals, but I'll buy another pair of these womens sandals for walking.” – Ann T Lucas
